The Hot Ticket

Selling lotto tickets is an everyday job just about every where you go. In Costa Rica The Lotto Man gets into the act of selling. He believes he's got the hot ticket. So if you are lucky, take a chance.

I'm teaching street photography in Costa Rica for a few more days then home.

A simple shout out to my friends. Thanks for being a friend.

    Glen, your photo-journalistic style photography is very expressive.and eye opening, letting the viewer see and understand the grind of every day people.

    dear glenn,
    that´s another fine shot. looking at his face, one feels able to establish a sort of relation to the lotto seller. a fine portrait set in his enviroment.
    wish you and your students lots of good pics in c.r.

    …and i might even fall for it! he just has that attitude… luck in the guise of a handsome salesman with a (deceptively?) honest face and just the right amount of a daredevil attitude, surrounded and favored by a low cowhide sky – it makes me get in the mood for going for that hot ticket and challenging fortuna! ; ) one cannot live by bread (and vegetables) alone, even if one has to work hard for being able to buy it. hope is… a lotto ticket? ; ))) greetings, sabine.
